Five Nine Solutions Partner with ROOT6 Technology to Deliver ContentAgent-XR

ROOT6 Technology recently introduced new V.2.2 software for ContentAgent-XR at the Video Forum exhibition in London's Earls Court. The new software includes important features to further broaden ContentAgent's appeal and turbo-charge customers' workflow. ContentAgent-XR is a third-generation GPU-accelerated capture, playback and transcoding engine, with hardware developed and integrated by five-ninesolutions ( to provide ROOT6 Technology customers with a universal encoding platform to streamline workflow with substantial productivity benefits.

As a specialist provider of broadcast, postproduction and media computer products, five-ninesolutions ( took the ROOT6-defined concept and refined the specification to provide the most optimal solution. Andy Vasey from five-ninesolutions said "We needed to take a number of things into consideration including the proposed application environment and appearance. We then refined all aspects of the design including mechanical, electrical, electronics and aesthetics".

ContentAgent-XR makes working with files a breeze, even for non-technical operators. From material imported from any source or captured from tape, even the most complex multi-format encoding processes are speedily and effortlessly created - including all associated metadata. These automated workflows may then be saved as templates for sharing or reuse, or for unattended batch capture. Integrated delivery via ftp, email or RSS feed saves yet more time and adds greatly to convenience.

Speaking of five-ninesolutions involvement, Marcus Hume-Humphreys said "We chose five-ninesolutions to design, integrate and manufacture the hardware platform for ContentAgent-XR. We have had no reason whatsoever to regret that decision and five-ninesolutions has consistently proved itself to be the ideal development partner."
